Nice but the rear BBL band was put on backwards. I’m looking for a nice clean 100% correct pre-war carbine too.

Good eye, Len.  It makes me wonder about the rest of it now!

Len is correct, and you should seriously wonder what else has been monkeyed with… Personally, I have considerable reservations about the person who inspects and writes the descriptions for Winchester firearms for RIA.  It is readily apparent that they do not have a clue what to look for.

The person who owned those guns was a friend of mine. He was the one I got my 1892 from. The entire lot of guns is estimated to go for between 35-40 million dollars. There are some very spectacular guns going up for auction.

Yes, Len is correct, Bert, and that is certainly cause to make anyone wonder about the rest of it as we both note!  Especially, anyone that is looking to buy such an example.   I also fully understand and appreciate your input about RIA descriptions.

Well, that is certainly nice to know, but the screw being put in on the wrong side does create concern.  Thanks for the post!

Were are they getting these prices? They see a little high. I bought a PR 4-1942 a while back for $850 and it is real close to mint. Big Larry

Yes unfortunately he is not the one describing the guns. He was 95 years old and had a stroke in his vault a few weeks ago. He son is the one that got RIA involved. The son is not interested in guns at all….Go figure. He also worked on guns. So really you have to inspect what you want to bid on carefully.
